People age 50 or older are invited to the Salamonie Interpretive Center on July 2 to listen to interpretive naturalist Kristie Ridgeway share details of her school semester in Australia.
Highlights for Ridgeway included holding a koala bear and seeing flying foxes, which are actually large bats. She will also share other impressions of her trip, including her experience with vegemite and volunteer work.
The program starts with lunch at 12:30 p.m. The meat dish will be provided by Upper Wabash Interpretive Services. Seniors should bring a dish to pass, their own table service and a donation to help offset the cost of the provided meat dish.
Those interested should register by calling 468-2127 or by visiting the interpretive center, 3691 S. New Holland Rd., Andrews.
The center is in the Lost Bridge West recreation area in western Huntington County. There is a standard entry fee for in-state and out-of-state vehicles, which will be in effect.
